I've not quite processed that summer is almost over. Soon school will be back in session and we will trade our tank tops in for sweaters. I love summer, but I have to admit I'm actually very excited for a new season. Like everyone else, the fall is my favorite time of year. I'm ready for crisp afternoon walks and pumpkin everything. Although we still have a while before the weather shifts, stores everywhere are beginning to roll out the first taste of fall. This chambray flutter top comes from J.Crew's pre fall collection, and I must say I'm in love. The fabric is incredibly comfortable and the rich blue color will be so easy to carry into fall. While it is still 500 degrees outside, I'll be inside dreaming of changing leaves and oversized sweaters.
For some reason New Year's resolutions came into my head the other day. Have you been a rockstar and kept up with them, or are you like the rest of us that failed the first month? I turned twenty-two a few weeks ago and I had the same re-evaluation of my life that January typically brings. "How was last year, and how are you going to grow this year?" I think it is an important question to ask ourselves, the trick is to not get caught up in the expectations we might have. When I imagined what I would be like at twenty-two, I thought my life was going to look incredibly different from where it is now. Sure there are some things I wish were different, but over all I'm incredibly happy with how life has unfolded. We have no control over that, so it really is silly to get upset over unmet expectations. All we can really do is be the best versions of ourselves today and strive for growth tomorrow.
